What I Use to Boost My Immune System & Fight Viruses

Mar 05, 2020

In our house, it’s all about prevention and preparation each cold and flu season. With the coronavirus looming around in full speed in the media right now, people are even more concerned about getting sick - especially after the flu ran rampant more than ever! 

Here are the current products that my husband and I are loading up on.

*As always, check with your Doctor if you have any concerns or health issues. This is for educational purposes always!

Renew Life

Every Fall, we kick off with a gentle gut cleanse with Renew Life and a Activate with Modere. I would say no more than 1 or 2 times a year for a cleanse is enough, unless your doctor directs you differently.

Why the Gut?

Well this is where the immune system, bacteria and viruses meet! A huge proportion of your immune system is actually in your GI tract and if your microbiome is off - then your system is down. Your gut wall houses 70% of the cells that make up your immune system. You might not attribute digestive problems with allergies, arthritis, autoimmune diseases (irritable bowel syndrome, acne, chronic fatigue), mood disorders, autism, dementia and cancer. Many diseases seemingly unrelated are actually caused by gut problems.

With bacteria and other microbes vastly outnumbering the human cells in our bodies, we’re more bacteria than human. Our bodies can’t function properly without them. They support our immune system, help us process and absorb nutrients, and lower the risk many conditions, including:

  • obesity
  • heart disease
  • diabetes
  • cancer
  • mental health and mood conditions

But we need to keep our microbiome happy, especially during the cold and flu season. So, in this house, we shape up our gut, so it can better perform and absorb all the nutrients we need for a strong immune system like antioxidants and probiotics. 

Renew Life

I love this brand! We use the Gentle Cleanse, however if you are looking for something more targeted, they also have a parasite cleanse or liver detox. Note - if you develop diarrhea - discontinue use! This wholesome, 2-part herbal cleansing program is formulated to help you get rid of digestive toxins and support regularity. It's easy to use and ideal for those who are new to cleansing or just want a more gentle cleansing experience. The morning cleanse supports detoxification; the evening cleanse promotes elimination.

Afterwards (about 2 weeks) - I resumed all of my normal supplements (I paused everything during the cleanse) and could feel the difference!

Ester-C increases vitamin C levels in white blood cells, an essential part of the immune system. It stays in your system longer than regular vitamin C, as in up to 24 hours! The naturally occurring metabolites in our formula, teeny tiny molecules that run your metabolism, are the reason why this magical C can last so long.

Practitioners of alternative medicine say grapefruit seed extract possesses antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties and recommended its use for the treatment of candidiasis, earaches, throat infections and diarrhea - and for me, it does wonders while sick!

Reach for the GSE at the first symptoms of flu or cold! 10 drops in water and down it goes once an illness strikes! (adults) If your throat is sore - do 3 drops in some water and gargle for 20 seconds and spit out (do not swallow).

Benefits of this powerful seed:

  • Kills off yeast
  • FIghts UTI’s
  • Fights fungus
  • Helps treat digestive disorders
  • Anti-viral

 Annie’s Remedies (Homeopathy)

 How does homeopathy work?

 The underlying principle of homeopathy is also at the heart of modern physiology - in fact around 1900, there were many universities that had homeopathic studies in them! Homeopathy operates on a law of nature - "like cures like”, and has been used clinically for more than 200 years.

So what does "like cures like” mean?

Hippocrates talked about it. It means that a patient suffering from symptoms can be treated and cured by doses of a substance (mineral, animal or plant) capable of producing similar symptoms in a healthy person. Tens of thousands of physicians and over five hundred million people use homeopathy around the world – which according to the World Health Organization makes it the 2nd most commonly used form of alternative medicine. Homeopathic nanoparticles can initiate a process in nature called hormesis. Hormesis is a term from pharmacology, toxicology and physiology that refers to the way the body adapts over time to low levels of stressors or toxins. 

It is commonly understood in medicine today that symptoms are not just something “wrong” with the body, but rather, they represent the efforts of the body and mind to defend and heal itself from a variety of infective agents and/or stresses. The body creates fever, inflammation, pain, discharge, or whatever is necessary in order to heal itself. While these symptoms represent the body’s best efforts to heal, they are not always successful in doing so. Ultimately, homeopathic medicines are some of the most powerful natural drugs available today to help augment the body’s ability to heal itself.

Homeopathic medicine presents a significantly different pharmacological approach to treating illnesses. Instead of using strong and powerful doses of medicinal agents that have a broad-spectrum effect on a wide variety of people with a similar disease, homeopaths use extremely small doses of medicinal substances that are highly individualized to a person’s physical and psychological syndrome of disease, not simply an assumed localized pathology.

Homeopathic remedies seem to work by hormetically signaling your body to reverse the many adaptations it has made to combat an allergen, infection or chronic stressor. In short – the remedies trigger your body’s innate ability to heal.
